Animal Kingdom / Seattle vacation
« on: August 05, 2012, 06:23:57 AM »
I was hoping to get advice for more specific locations I might get some good bird of prey shots while I vacation in Sept. I plan on bringing my 600mm F4 IS USM, my 5d3, 1d4 and 24-70 for shots of my wife and I.
Any other travel advice is appriciated as well. This is the first time travelling with my 600. I was hoping to use my camera bag and 600 as my carry ons.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 1D MKIV VS 5D MKIII Cameras

5 D Mk iii pros  low light noise slightly better
ease of use, the menus are far better organized.
HDR mode for in-camera editting if you're lazy like me
[/list]  dedicated live mode button

Cons
need lightroom 4 to edit RAW
low energy floresant bulbs at certain shutter speeds smears colors
[/list] weather sealing not as thorough

1d mk iv pros
ergonomics
f8 max aperature focusing
[/list] 1d's just hold their value better

I own both, listed both on CL along with my 7d then never returned emails because I can't decide either.

5d mk iii kill the 1d mk iv in low noise tests, so I imagine a 1dx would be even more of the same.

EOS Bodies / Re: 1DX on preorder

I thought about it, and still thinking about cancelling my  pre-order 1dx. After hearing the September rumors and knowing I preordered late March or so...I broke down and ordered a 5d mk iii figuring I would have time to make a decision on FF vs crop.
I am just a hobby nature tog, so $ could be used in wiser places. So, now I guess I get to review 7d vs 1d mk iv vs 5d mk iii vs 1dx.
I'll post on YouTube what I find if anyone cares.

Figures! After hearing the September rumors,  I placed an order for a 5d mk iii. I didn't cancel my 1dx order.

Finally, apple invented the digital camera. This will make life easier, because film is just tedious and expensive to develop. I think I will buy the 2gb, 5MP camera for only $500. Bow before almighty Apple.

Personally, I think it will affect the sheep that think everything apple must be better, because it is more expensive, but not for dslr users. In ten years, maybe they might be competing seriously with Canikon, but I doubt they will right off the bat.

Lenses / Re: 4K to spend and I don't know what to do with it!!!
« on: May 27, 2012, 06:37:07 PM »
Personally, depending on how much gear you have already:
None:
T2i $450 used each
580 ex ii $350 used
35L 1.4 $1300 used or 24-70 f2.8 $1200 used
Later, I'd upgrade to 5d mk iii for low light ability.

Lens collector:
5d mk iii $3250 refurbs on eBay
50 f1.4 $300

And what would you do for the poor sap who forgets his password? Phones and computers can be reset to original factory settings. Cameras that isn't too bothersome to a thief probably.

I would love to send this body into Canon Service to get a quote for repair just to see what their response would be.   

Love this guy's videos, thanks for posting.   ;D ;D ;D

Oh, next time I want to see the new 24-70 II lens attached.

They would say save some money and buy a new camera.

EOS Bodies / Re: Where have the 1D Mark IV's gone
« on: May 24, 2012, 12:56:58 PM »
Mine hasn't gone anywhere. :)
We'll see if I want to sell it, and/or my 7d after my 1dx comes.

I doubt I am lucky to be one of the first, but hopefully june

My guess is to make money. That's probably why they sell anything they can.

It's only because, like everyone else, he couldn't get his paws on a 1Dx.

EOS Bodies / Re: tripod help for EF 600mm f4 IS USM?
« on: May 18, 2012, 03:48:53 PM »
it didn't have a flat head, the main picture has one, but the enlarged pictures does not. The title even says 75mm thread adapter, but there was just a hole. I returned everything. The lens I boughtcame with a replacement foot which works with my wimberley wh-200

Gitzo GT3541XLS seems to be discontinued at B&H what is the weight rating, height and weight of the tripod? I see it for sale on Amazon, but it had no information other than rated to use up to a 500mm (lighter than the 600mm).
